Chris Sugrue is an interaction designer, artist, programer and lecturer. She took part in the team which created one of the most intriguing and awarded wearable technology project in 2010 – The EyeWriter.
It’s a low-cost eye controlled drawing tool for ALS patients (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), a degenerative neuromuscular disorder that causes paralysis, initially created for cult LA graffiti artist and activist Tempt1.
Chris spent this spring / summer as artist-in-residence in Ljudmila (Ljubljana, Slovenia), presenting her work also in Kibla (Maribor,) and netclub MaMa in Zagreb (Croatia). Her visit to Zagreb was organized by Center for Synergy of Digital and Visual Arts and Upgrade Zagreb! (both founded by Maja Kalogera).

Let’s plunge a bit into the core of one of the most innovative progressive rock music story – the story of Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart…
Hence, here we have BBC documentary from 1994 titled ‘The Artist Formerly Known as Captain Beefheart’, narrated by John Peel, featuring Beefheart himself, Frank Zappa, Ry Cooder, etc.
